MRTY5090: Multiplanar Anatomy A

Detailed multiplanar anatomy of the musculoskeletal system and vascular and pulmonary systems of the thorax is presented in this unit. While this unit is targeted at professionals working with CT and/or MRI, it could also be directly relevant to professionals working with hybrib SPECT or PET and those using CT or MR images in radiation therapy planning. A basic knowledge of cross-sectional anatomy is assumed.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. Apply knowledge of the cardiovascular system's anatomical structures and their features, in order to correctly interpret axial, coronal and sagittal CT images of the thorax.
  • LO2. Apply knowledge of the musculoskeletal system's anatomical structures and their features, in order to correctly interpret axial, coronal and sagittal MR images of the shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand, knee, and ankle & foot.
  • LO3. Apply knowledge of the location and function of cardiovascular and musculoskeletal anatomy (shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand, knee, and ankle & foot), in order to analyse anatomical changes and clinical presentations related to pathology in these regions.
  • LO4. Examine the relationship between anatomy (cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems) and MR and CT technology, in order to identify limitations when visualising anatomy and pathology in these regions.
  • LO5. Synthesise published literature and available information of normal anatomy and pathology related to the cardiovascular or musculoskeletal system, in order to engage in discussion and accurately communicate knowledge in a format suitable for medical radiation professionals.
